As a girl, Shirley Larson climbed the mulberry tree to belt out a song. She always thought she would be a musician. But after teaching music, and marrying an electric engineer and having three children, she decided to try writing. Her first story was accepted by a confession magazine. Then she went on to write thirty five romances and was published by Dell, Silhouette and Harlequin. She recently dodged the hurricane as a resident in Florida. Her husband is a saint and tolerates her sudden questions about the computer world.
